The story of Armstrong Leigh is still being written, but it’s quickly becoming an action-packed adventure. In less than a year since officially joining forces, the Austin-based duo of Michelle Armstrong and Cristopher Leigh has won over audiences with appearances across Texas and beyond. Having already completed residencies at Holy Mountain and Lamberts, showcasing at SXSW, and performing in support of Albert Hammond Jr. (The Strokes) and Vance Joy, the band has just released their debut single, “My Body”. Watch and listen below:
Cristopher Leigh (formerly of Electric Touch) and Michelle Armstrong met years ago while sharing the stage as members of different bands, but it wouldn’t be until one fateful show that the two would bond over a mutual adoration for melodic rock. Now, having made the legendary Arlyn Studios their recording home, the Armstrong Leigh sound is truly starting to find its groove. The two work well together, as the powerful, yet sensual qualities of Michelle’s vocal performance create a hypnotic effect when coupled with Christopher’s signature guitar hooks.
Armstrong Leigh is heading back to Arlyn Studios in August to record a complete EP, and will be heading out to support the release around the US (and in Austin) this fall. Keep an eye and ear open, as Armstrong Leigh will likely be storming a scene near you. You can give them a follow on Spotify, Facebook, Twitter, and at armstrongleigh.com.
